Triple-digit heat sweeping Austin possibly all week long

After a cooler-than-average summer, the Texas heat is back with 100-degree weather forecasted this week.

On Monday, Austin is expected to experience its third triple-digit day of the year with the rest of the week hovering just below or at 100 degrees. Although it will feel even hotter, with the heat index on Monday and Tuesday projected to be 105 and 103 degrees, respectively, according to the National Weather Service.

Midweek will offer the slightest cool down in the high 90s as there will be a 20% chance of rain and thunderstorms after 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Then it's back to 98+ degrees with clear skies into the weekend.

Stay cool by drinking lots of water, wearing light clothing and staying indoors when possible.
